Nice Fantasy Box Set
I so enjoy when authors put books of a series together in one volume so you can go from one to the next without having to purchase a separate book or wait. I don’t want to give away too much in talking about this since there are three books in this set. The first book did draw me in right away, both with what happened with Father Marduk and Amalia. Soon, her whole world shifted, and she was thrust into a world she wasn’t truly prepared for. The author set the stage for an epic fantasy series with all the required characters and then some: mages, dragons, wolves, and even gods who walk the Earth. I enjoyed the Norse mythology aspects of the story. For big-stage fantasy, these books are surprisingly short, but much happens in them to keep you turning the pages. It is such a fascinating world, though, that I found myself wishing for longer individual books. The pacing is good for the most part in all the books, although I did find the abrupt time shifts at times to be a bit jarring. All in all, though, I found this an engaging fantasy read.
